Pā Road Chardonnay 2020, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Jun-2021
Bright, medium-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full and rich, packed with nutty oak, barrel spices, and buttery toast underlined citrus zest and stonefruit. Full-bodied, nuances of toasty barrels filled the palate; roasted cashews, nutmeg and toast enriched peaches and citrus. Lively acidity shred light to the rich and toasty palate added vibrancy. Match with roasted chicken and creamy pasta over the next 2-3 years. The fruit was sourced around the Wairau Valley, machine-picked, fermented in a mix of tanks and barrels to 13.5% alc, 2.5g/l RS. Aged on lees for 9 months, 85% MLF. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) June 2021 RRP $16
